In a message from Italy we learn that “…… PVI (Piloti Virtuali Italiani), the most important Italian Flight Simulation Association, to celebrate the 15Â° years of activity is organizing a “Flight Simulator Show” (FSS2010), that will be held in Verona (Italy) on March 6th and 7th 2010.
Our association organized this kind of events for several years; after a three years break, the Association decided to “get it back”, with the firm idea of making it a regular event for all FS enthusiasts and professionals, and not just a single show….”.
“….. This one is going to be a great event that will have, in foreground, not only PVI as organizer, but the whole world of Flight Simulation. An invitation has been sent to the leading manufacturers and distributors, to ensure to all visitors a great weekend of fun and involvement, a true “full immersion” into the Flight Simulation. Besides the booths, where you can see the latest products released, there is a substantial agenda of meetings and interactive demonstration to give the opportunity to everybody to see, and often to try, what the world of flight simulation can offer, today.
The Association will organize not only the presence of exhibitors, but will also set up a large number of workstations for Flight Simulation to be used by all visitors. It’s possible to try several Cockpit, “just alike” reconstructions of plane and helicopter cockpits that will “bring” the visitor into “a new dimension of Flight Simulation, giving the exact idea of the level of realism achieved.
The show, a brief introduction:
In some of the past editions, FSS got many famous names of the FS world as exhibitors, like Project Magenta, CPFlight, Engravity, Flight Illusion, XesaSystems, but also names like Microsoft, XP-Italia (official presence of X-Plane), IVAO, VATSIM, Saitek; many Virtual Airlines, Aero Clubs, several Organizations and Flight Schools. Of course always present was ENAV (the Italian Company for Air Navigation Services), Alenia Areonautica etc., as well as a many real and Flight Simulation enthusiasts, air traffic controllers and professional pilots.
Be the first to introduce to the public new products and/or organizations has always been one of the goals of this event; the last one was the “TileProxy Poject”, presented “on the stage” for the first time in Europe during the last edition. Cultural events complete the show, as “Prova a Volare” (“Try to Fly”), a very interesting exhibition about the history of Flight Simulation by the Air Museum “Gianni Caproni” (Trento — Italy).
The event is hosted “inside” another big event, the Model Expo Italy, a very important Hobby Model fair with visitors coming from all over Europe, a fair that “can count” on over 50.000 visitors and about 230 exhibitors (the “numbers” of the past edition).
It’s possible to choose among the following solutions: 3x3m, 6x6m, 8x3m and 10x3m, depending on your real needs and the availability at the moment you are going to confirm it. The exhibition area, the equipment, a “high speed” Internet access and AC power are provided totally free of charge. This opportunity is given to “no-profit” organizations, those who don’t sell their products at the booth; to get it, please fill the associations application form, here, and send it to the address indicated. A copy shall be also sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If is your intention to be present as “Company”, then you need to apply for as “commercial” that you can find at this page.
